We’re incredibly proud and happy to present a new work for Nuart in Aberdeen from Australian artist Vexta.



Based between New York and Mexico, Vexta reached out through a mutual friend in Melbourne with news that she was to be in Scotland for a commission and did we also perhaps have a wall. We’d met in Brooklyn a few years previously and I’d always been keen to work with her. There simply aren’t enough opportunities to work with female street artists and Vexta has an immediately recognisable style and technique that makes her ideal for a project like this. Mo – the owner of The Tunnels, had taken great time and expense to prepare a wall for us for Nuart in April, but due to various reasons, we were unable to tackle it. But good things come to those who wait, and nothing could be more suited to this site than a colourful Vexta piece. Mo has even fiited bespoke coloured lights for the piece which lifts it to another level. Unfortunately we were unable to be in town ourselves, but Mary Butterworth and Jon Reid, honorary Nuart Family members and owners of the Ke:Kun Studio space in Rosemount stepped in to aid the production.

Vexta is a self-taught artist from Sydney Australia. With a background in Street Art beginning in the mid 2000s, her bold and extravagant artworks have invaded our visual landscape from Melbourne to Mexico and everywhere in between, from large-scale murals to gallery exhibitions, she is a nomad of our modern times.


Viewing the world through her psychedelic kaleidoscope, Vexta reinterprets the sacred elements within cosmology, mythology, life/death and the feminine, navigating these themes through the common threads that bind our experiences. Exploring the interconnectedness of all living things by juxtaposing animals and human forms amid her symbolic, geometric shapes, she provides an insight into our fundamental engagement with the human condition. Her recent practice has grown to include soundscapes, animated projections and installations. She has exhibited extensively across Australia, Europe and North America, including The National Gallery of Australia, Saatchi Gallery London, Banksy’s Cans Festival and has her work held in numerous public, academic and private collections globally. She also collaborates with clients such as Converse, Fabergé, Volcom, Juxtapoz, Adobe & Samsung. She currently spends her time based between New York USA & Tulum, Mexico.
